Perry Mason, S.7, Ep. 28. “The Case Of The Drifting Dropout” First broadcast May 7, 1964. This was a later story not based on an Erle Stanley Gardner novel, but the show had good writers. A variety of interesting faces: longtime movie supporting actors Vaughn Taylor, Malcolm Atterbury, and film noir regular Ted de Corsia. Also in the cast is Neil Hamilton, who about a year and a half later would start a run as Commissioner Gordon on the 1966 “Batman” series and Cynthia Pepper, who had already had her own one season TV series, “Margie,” during the 1961-62 season. Pepper was an early actress crush for many male adolescents of the time, including me.
GILLIGAN'S ISLAND., THE FRIENDLY PHYSICIAN, 1966, the only time they got off the isl;and, only for them to be changed to eachj other, and Ginger, the odd one out, got swkitch with the henchman of the "new friend" who broght them their and owned that creepy castle they were in. Season 2, episode ?
I'm in the process of re-watching "The Wild Wild West" on DVD. The last episode I watched is "The Night of the Dancing Death" (Season 1, Episode 8). So, as of this writing, I've completed the first two discs of the first season.
The 1962 third season episode of The Twilight Zone, "I Sing the Body Electric" in honor of Veronica Cartwright's 70th birthday. I know some fans of the series dislike this one, but I have always liked it with its different flavor than the rest of the series due to Ray Bradbury's authorship.
Lost in Space, season 1 episode 3. This show started out so promising but by the second season it devolved into a real mess.
I own (only) the first season of Lost in Space on DVD, and it was already devolving in the latter half of that season. The show stayed more or less faithful to its original concept through The Keeper: Part 1 and 2. But after that, we got campy and cringe-worthy episodes like "The Sky Pirate" (Ep 18) and "The Space Croppers" (Ep 25). Regarding the latter, you know you're in trouble when the gorgeous Sherry Jackson can't save your episode. However, the season did end strongly with "Follow the Leader" (Ep29).
Perry Mason: The Case Of The Elusive Element (I think I got that right). A good one from '63, featuring excellent supporting players, among them Gerald Mohr and George Macready (reunited, seventeen years after Gilda, though they were both in the 1951 Detective Story as well). Also, two Douglases, Dick and Henderson. Ronald Long was in there somewhere as well. Good story, fondly remembered from childhood, in which typewriters (remember them?) figure (heavily) into the plot.
